Today I’m joined Nicky Chapman, a fiancé, mama to be + Finance Manager turned Integrative Nutrition Coach, living in Canberra, Australia.
After overcoming Anorexia 15 years ago, Nicky turned to the health and fitness industry. Over time she ended up taking things too far. She was stressed out, over-training, and under-eating. Instead of dealing with emotional stress that felt out of my control, she tried to manage it in ways that have ended up negatively affecting her health, consequently developing Hypothalamic Amenorrhea at a time where she was desperate to get pregnant.
Realising that being fit didn’t necessarily equal healthy, was the massive wake up call she needed. Nicky ended up changing career paths, re-educating herself and learning about the importance of nourishing the mind as well as the body.
Eventually, she healed not only her body but her relationship with it, and fell pregnant naturally..
Nicky is deeply passionate about sharing her experience and helping other women achieve a balance of physical, mental & emotional health + happiness, which is why I’m so excited to have her on the podcast today to share her story. You can follow Nicky on Instagram @thewellnessantidote.
In this episode Nicky and I take a deeper look at:
- Her Hypothalamic Amenorrhea journey
- The triumphs and tribulations she experienced while working towards getting her period back
- The power of journalling for helping her navigate change
- Her biggest and most helpful mental shifts during recovery
- How she fell pregnant naturally and
- Dealing with body image during recovery and pregnancy.
